An Executive Haven opens in Kenai

Posted: Tuesday, November 19, 2002

Ever since the discovery of oil and gas at Swanson River, Kenai has been a destination for executive level people. Now, almost half a century later, Cheney McLennan has created an "Executive Haven" in Kenai that caters to the special needs of all levels of executives from large corporate types to small business people, and even families with too many in-laws or out-laws visiting for the summer or the holidays.

The new facility is called the McLennan House and is located on Davidson Street in Kenai, about 600 feet off the Spur Highway near the beaver dam. "We feel we are offering a unique service here at the McLennan House. The Kenai is home to many diverse businesses and our facility offers a greater intimacy for seminars, training and retreats, with the ease of private on site lodging and catering," said McLennan.

The McLennan House has already become a home away from home for many VIP's including Governor Elect Frank Murkowski and his wife Nancy, "We've had the honor of hosting the Murkowski's on several occasions, and they particularly enjoy the privacy and comfort of the McLennan House and the wilderness feel of the grounds while still being in the heart of town," added Cheney. McLennan is affiliated with Lori Chase of the Chase is Over catering which adds a gourmet touch to the services available, "We can host people here and tuck them in with a delicious filet mignon or oysters Rockefeller, and have them awake fresh and ready for their seminars or meetings just a few steps away at a facility complete with overhead projection, fax and copy machines, and everything necessary to take care of business," said McLennan.

The McLennan House is just the beginning of a project that Cheney has been working on for some six years, "We have our eyes on the future for even larger facilities, that's a few years away yet, but we think that Kenai is a great place to be and the future is wide open," said McLennan. Details on the McLennan House are available at or by calling 283-5939.
